Need a textbook? It might be on reserve!

If you haven’t gotten your textbooks yet, here’s one way to avoid falling behind on assignments and readings. Your book may be available on reserve at the library. To find out if we have your book, you will need to know the course number and your instructor’s name.

Start at the library’s home page, and click on “Course Reserves” on the left side.

You can search by course number or instructor’s name. In this example we’ll use the course number. Make sure that you use the 3 or 4 letter prefix, such as CHEM, and not the full name of the subject, such as Chemistry. You only need the 4 digit number, not the section number.

If your book is on reserve, this will show you where it is located. Main reserves are at the Jerome Library first floor circulation desk. Firelands reserves are at Firelands campus (reserves can’t be sent between campuses). CRC reserves and Music reserves are in Jerome Library on the 2nd and 3rd floors.

This also shows that the book is available. If the item is checked out, it will say what time it is due back.

If your book is not available on reserve, you might be able to request a copy via OhioLINK. Learn more about finding your book with OhioLINK, or, if you need help, don’t hesitate to Ask Us!
